When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
∙ Enabling Faculty360 to recognize your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task and presenting you with the most relevant courses, programs, reviews and scholarships.
∙ Recognizing that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested.
∙ Measuring how many people are using our sites, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast.
You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies - what they are and how to manage them.
You represent that you are not a minor and that you are not under any legal or other disability which limits your ability to comply with these Terms or to install and use the products you purchase with minimal risk of harm to you or others. You further represent that you are not purchasing the products/services for resale to others and will not do so without Pathfinder Publishing Pvt. Ltd.’s prior written consent.
